    I have to admit I thought you lot were joking about the dripping sandwiches until I saw it on the menu! I don't think I have ever had a dripping sandwich, looking forward to it - see you all then.

    The fact that you're looking forward to it may be taken as proof that you've never had it.
    (Though it has to be admitted that many speak highly of the experience.)
    I prefer the stollen at the same venue.

    But they don't provide Kendal Mint Cake. Just about everything else edible, plus Stollen and dripping sandwiches, but no mint cake. I have to carry my own, which probably loses me a few vital seconds due to the extra weight. Grumble grumble grrr... [wanders off into the undergrowth...]

    this is worrying- I did this race last year and have no recollection of either stollen which I love or dripping sanries which I quite like if it is slightly brown (from bacon bits) and salty. Did I just run past?

    I didn't realise anyone ate KMC more than once. I,m not sure that sugar lumps soaked in toothpaste satisfy the criteria for "edible".
    I've never had them, but I must admit I quite fancy trying a dripping butty!

    A lovely picture of Calderdale by the way, Daz.

    Welcome Karen to Calderdale Group of the LDWA.

    You seem to have missed out previously on some of our gourmet dripping sandwiches. I have to say I prefer Marmite which gives a guaranteed all over taste whereas dripping can be a bit uneven. Not so certain about the cholestorol content of either product but you are probably not bothered about that. Both are a welcome contrast to the sweet stuff.

    The sandwiches are at CP3 and a few at CP5. You need to go into Steve Gumbley's workshop at CP3 to find the food grotto where there is a toilet for retiring entrants. It is on the left of the track as you pass through the CP.

    The food on this brilliant race, is very very good. There was a good chocolate cake I seem to recall at CP2, and as for the food grotto mentioned above, well it was like stumbling into Aladdin's Cave!
